BALANCE “I’m Enough!” the Magic Mirror Project from the all-woman band The Mrs. From the Editor: A couple of months ago, Sharon C. called me and asked if I had seen this video about a magic mirror that was going viral. “You have to see it. But make sure you have tissues! I think this would be perfect for ZOOM!” she told me excitedly. Of course, I took the bait because, well, how could you not with an introduction like that? I knew the video would be moving, but I certainly was not prepared to be affected in the way I was. Like so many other women out there, I too am my own worst critic. I am not even talking about the physical things about myself that I could easily critique when I look at the person who stares back at me in the mirror. I’m talking about every day doubts that slip in when I question how I am doing as a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend. So I thought to myself, if I needed this reminder, “Hey, I’m enough!” then maybe you all did too! We started Zoom and created this Balance section as that reminder! We want ZOOM to answer your questions, entertain you and give you a sense of hope. When you finish each issue of ZOOM, we want you to feel that you are heard, to know you are not alone, and most of all to believe THAT YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH! After watching the video about 18 times and going through an entire box of Kleenex, I decided to reach out to its creators, The Mrs. 36 Zoom Autism Through Many Lenses
